Half a century after the explosion of the so-called “second wave”, the subversive radicality of feminism is threatened by governmental policies and discourses that focus on its . Neoliberal apparatuses, which turn female freedom into entrepreneurial self-affirmation and neutralise sexual difference as one among other fragmented social identities, are added to the recurring trends, of a Marxist and liberal stamp respectively, which reduce the demand for female freedom to an issue of social emancipation or equitable inclusion of women in the democratic citizenship.
